NHL commentator Jack Edwards has been known for his crazy comments that he tends to throw live on television without any backlash, this time former NHL referee Tim Peel has clapped back following a outrageous shot was thrown by Jack Edwards on referee Steve Kozri.

In the Bruins 2-1 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs last night, referees had to deal with many players coming out to them asking for answers on many calls. Jack Edwards said the following about Steve Kozari on live TV.

"McAvoy is seeking an explanation from Steve Kozari, and Kozari is the first official to exit the ice," Edwards exclaimed. "Coward!"




Tim Peel came quickly to the defense of a fellow NHL referee he once worked with:

"I think Jack Edwards may be having some health issues and I sympathize with that. But calling Referee #40 Steve Kozari a coward is despicable. Kozari was carried off on a stretcher 3 weeks ago in Pittsburg in a collision with Hayden Fleury of #GoBolts Last year he fat shamed Pat Maroon. Very sad Jack!"


It was quite unclassy of Jack Edwards for targeting a referee who has just been medically cleared for returning to action since the incident between him and Tampa Bay Lightning defenceman Haydn Fleury intervened which eventually led the ref to go into a stretcher just three weeks ago.
